Pony Music Library 15: "Princess Twilight Orchestral Suite"

This was already in the queue, but with the terrible news that MelodicPony has died at the absurdly early age of 27, it seems only right and proper to bring its feature forward.

What? "Princess Twilight Orchestral Suite"

Who? MelodicPony

Which? Original song

When? April 2013

Why? Orchestral isn't the most popular musical genre in the fandom, but there's some truly wonderful work around even so. MelodicPony was one of the foremost exponents of the arc. He wrote several pieces that I really like, and this may well not be the last MelodicPony track I feature here. This one seems to me to perfectly capture the emotion behind the events leading up to Twilight's ascension, and wonderfully judges the use of just enough segments from several of the canon songs; "Celestia's Ballad" is especially well integrated. Even without the recent tragic news, this is a deeply touching piece.
